Botox Q & A

What should I know about Botox?

Botox is a nonsurgical FDA-approved cosmetic injection that temporarily improves moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. The results produced by Botox injections are subtle but effective. Millions of men and women have used Botox to improve their looks. 

Botox works by temporarily reducing the muscle activity under your skin that creates the lines and wrinkles to help give you smoother skin and a younger look. Your Internal Medicine Partners provider injects Botox into precise areas to create a more youthful, fresher look that doesn’t make you look frozen or expressionless. 

What can I expect during Botox injections?

Your Botox injections are quick and relatively painless. Though treatment time varies from person to person, your injections may take only 10 minutes, so you can have them done on your lunch break.

The number of injections you need depends on your aesthetic goals. In general:

  • Crow’s feet: three injections around each eye
  • Frown lines: five injections
  • Forehead lines: five injections

Your provider uses a tiny needle for Botox treatments, and you may feel a fleeting pinch during your injections. If you’re sensitive to pain, let your provider know so they can adjust your treatments to minimize discomfort.

There’s no downtime following Botox injections, and you can even apply makeup to cover up any redness. However, you shouldn't massage the injection site and hold off on strenuous activity for at least two hours following your Botox treatments.

You should notice an improvement in your look within 24-48 hours after your Botox session. 

How long does Botox last?

Botox can keep you looking young and fresh for several months. The team recommends maintenance injections every three to six months to maintain your appearance. Some people need more maintenance injections and some less. Your provider can advise you on the best course of action. 

Frequent Botox injections help thin out the muscle under your skin, which may prolong the effectiveness of your treatments.

Botox is a simple, safe, and effective cosmetic treatment that takes very little time. Call the office today or reach out online to request an appointment to schedule your Botox injections.
